on the surveillance law, at least you have in the past. how would a biden administration be different from an obama administration if that were to happen. >> god forbid that would ever happen, it would be a national tragedy of historic proportions if it were to happen. but if it did, i would carry out barack obama's policy, his policies of reinstating the middle class, making sure they get a fair break, making sure they have access to affordable health insurance, making sure they get serious tax breaks, making sure we can help their children get to college, making sure there is an energy policy that leads us in the direction of not only toward independence and clean environment but an energy policy that creates 5 million new jobs, a foreign policy that ends this war in iraq, a foreign policy that goes after the one mission the american public gave the president after 9/11, to get and capture or kill bin laden and to eliminate al qaeda. a policy that would in fact engage our allies in making sure that we knew we were acting on the same page and not dictating. and a policy tha

less of it? well, i guess the laws of physics are more like.. general guidelines. and every day since, two years ago, the people of bp made a commitment to the gulf. we've worked hard to keep it. bp has paid over twenty-three billion dollars to help people and businesses who were affected, and to cover cleanup costs. today, the beaches and gulf are open for everyone to enjoy -- and many areas are reporting their best tourism seasons in years. we've shared what we've learned with governments and across the industry so we can all produce energy more safely. i want you to know, there's another commitment bp takes just as seriously: our commitment to america. bp supports nearly two-hundred-fifty thousand jobs in communities across the country. we hired three thousand people just last year. bp invests more in america than in any other country. in fact, over the last five years, no other energy company has invested more in the us than bp. we're working to fuel america for generations to come. today, our commitment to the gulf, and to america, has never been stronger. on to taxes. if your ti

. >> because you changed the law. >> let me ask you, if it could help solve the problem, why not very slowly raise the medicare eligibility age by two years as congressman ryan suggests. >> look, i was there when we did that with social security. in 1983. i was one of eight people sitting in the room that included tip o'neill negotiating with president reagan. we all got together and everybody said as long as everybody's in the deal, everybody is in the deal, and everybody is making some sacrifice, we can find a way. we made the system solvent to 2033. we will not, though, be part of any voucher plan eliminating-- the voucher says mom, when are you 65, go out there, shop for the best insurance you can get. you're out of medicare, can you can buy back if if you want with this voucher which will not keep pace, will not keep pace with health-care cost. because if it did keep pace with health-care costs there would be no savings. that is why they go the voucher. we will be no part of a voucher program or the privatization of social security. >> a vouch certificate you go to your mailbox, get a c

coverage. later, biden did not support the final medicare drug benefit that president bush signed into law. and the vice president was not correct when he suggested tonight that he did not support the two wars because the country could not afford them. biden did vote for both wars. there was also a sharp disagreement tonight over medicare. biden charged that ryan's original plan would raise out of pocket costs for most seniors. >> look, folks, use your common sense. who do you trust on this, a man who introduced a bill that would raise it $6400 a year, knowing it and passing it and romney saying he'd sign it, or me and the president? >> ryan objected. >> that statistic was completely misleading, but more importantly -- >> those are the facts. >> this is what politicians do when they don't have a record to run on. try to scare people from voting for you. >> in fact on this, biden is right. the congressional budget office said that ryan's first budget plan would force most future seniors to pay increased costs out of pocket. that amount or more. whether a revised plan would cost more is stil

had already gotten married and graduated from college and finished law school, that's when paul ryan was born. so we will see how age and the difference plays in this debate tonight, as we watch things about to get underway, here in danville. >> reporter: good evening and welcome to the first and only vice-presidential debate of 2012. sponsored by the commission on presidential debates. i'm martha raddatz of abc news. i am honored to moderate this debate between two men who have dedicated much of their lives to public service. tonight's debate is divided between domestic and foreign policy issues. i am going to move back and forth between foreign and domestic since that's what a vice-president or president would have to do. we will have 9 segments. at the beginning of each segment, i will ask both candidates a question and they will each have 2 minutes to answer. then i will encourage a discussion between the candidates with follow-up questions. by coin toss, it has been determined that vice-president biden will be first to answer the opening question. we have a wonderful audience he

unnecessary. under the law of this country for the last 200 years, no state has been required to recognize another state's marriage. let me be simple about this. my state of north carolina would not be required to recognize a marriage from massachusetts, which you just asked about. there is absolutely no purpose in the law and in reality for this amendment. there's nothing -- it's nothing but a political tool and it's being used in an effort to divide this country on an issue we should not be dividing america on. we ought to be talking about issues like healthcare and jobs and what's happening in iraq. not using an issue that divides this country in a way that's solely for political purposes. it's wrong. >> mr. vice president, you have 90 seconds. >> well, let me simply thank the senator for the kind words he said about my family and our daughter. i appreciate that very much. >> you're welcome. you're welcome. >> that's it? >> that's it. >> ok. then we'll move on to the next question. this one is for you, mr. vice president. george bush has derided john kerry for putting a trial

ryan are misrepresenting the health care law and its restrictions? or its beaches? >> for joe biden to have said that he thinks he hears this panel talk on every vice presidential debate, how many vice presidential debates have there been in the last four years? this is only number two. i am glad that paul ryan was able to explain his idea and romney's idea is to allow for more choices for recipients of health care coverage. for them to take responsibility, make their own choices, instead of relying on a bankrupt system that will no longer be there as a safety net for the american public. if we keep going down the road that obama wants us to go down. and as for the death penalty will paul ryan was talking about had nothing to do with the panel of bureaucrats that will make life and death decisions when it comes to coverage instead of our doctors and patients being able to have a relationship, making our own decisions about what kind of coverage we would like. joe biden highlighted that end i want to talk about why we cannot afford these panels come or anything else that is a part of
